Geoff Smith and Pat Whitehurst


The dates are Thursday 8th to Saturday 17th September 2022, making a total of 9 nights.


The Walks

This area has walks and activities that can suit everyone. There are many buses and 17 different lifts so it is possible to enjoy the scenery without having to do strenuous walks. The leaders will put together a program of 8 full day walks. The full day walks will be up to 6 hours in length and can involve ascent and/or descent of up to 1000 metres on good non vertiginous paths. There are many options for an easier walk and these will be planned on a day to day basis depending on the route of the main walk. Most of the walks will involve a lift or bus to either reach the higher level or return from it. Walking is entirely optional and members are welcome to come and just relax or do their own thing. Non walking partners are very welcome, as Corvara is a very spectacular and beautiful area.

The Accommodation

Accommodation and half board will be arranged at the Col Alto Hotel which has a very central location in Corvara next to the buses and near the local shop. The hotel has an indoor heated pool and many sauna and ‘wellness’ options included in the price, and is a great base to relax as well as walk.

The Estimated Cost

At this stage, the cost is a close estimate since some of the prices for 2022 are not yet published and there can be fluctuations in the exchange rate.

Budget level costs at 2022 rates based on 2 persons sharing a room are:-

  • Return flights Birmingham to Munich - £170
  • Return Private Coach Transfers - £80
  • Hotel – 9 days half board in standard double - £820
  • 6 day lift pass - £90

Total £1160 per person

Hotel room options (including flights, transfers and lift pass as above) are:-

  • 2 or 3 persons sharing a room - £1160 per person
  • Single occupancy of a small double room - £1500 per person
  • Superior room - £1260 per person

The hotel costs are based on a budget quotation for a mixed set of room types using an exchange rate of 1.12€ to the pound. It will be necessary to find out the exact mix of rooms required before finalising the price. It may be necessary to ask for a deposit to book the hotel but this will be fully refundable up to 60 days before.
